And we’re going to share the most interesting facts about the Moon with you; it might change your mind about the moon’s simplicity.
Did you know, for example, that there are huge temperature fluctuations on the Moon? Or that its gravity is only 1/6th that of the Earth’s. If your weight here is 100 pounds, you’ll only weigh 17 pounds standing on the Moon’s surface. You would also be able to walk a distance 6 times longer and carry a weight 6 times heavier there.

– The Moon is not an ideal sphere. It’s shaped more like an egg because of the Earth’s gravity.
– We can see solar eclipses pretty often, but moon eclipses only happen once every several hundred years.
– Although the Moon seems really bright, its ability to reflect sunlight is 3 times less than that of Earth.
– It would take about 300,000 Moons to produce as much light at night as there is in the afternoon. About 206,000 of them would have to be full.
– The gravitational influence of the Moon has this effect on the oceans. The highest tide can be seen at full or new Moon.
– It was only in 1959 that people could finally see the other side of Moon, thanks to a photo taken by the Russian spacecraft “Luna 3”.
– Craters on the Moon were first named after famous scientists, artists and researchers, and later – after American and Russian astronauts.
– There’s water on the Moon, but leave your straw at home; it’s all frozen in the craters and under the ground.
– Long-distance jumps can be uncontrolled and dangerous, as the Moon’s surface is full of deep craters.
– The Moon does have a kind of atmosphere, which is called an exosphere. It consists of helium, neon and argon. It’s ten trillion times less dense than on Earth.
– The absence of oxygen in the atmosphere means that the sky is utterly black while the sun continues to glare.
– The Moon is the only space body outside the Earth where humans have landed. So far.
– Modern smartphones are more powerful than the computers that were used to land the “Apollo” spaceship on the Moon.
– 12 people have been to the Moon. Neil Armstrong was the first one in 1969, and Eugene Cernan, the last, in 1972.
– There are 200 tons of space junk on the Moon. Actually it’s experiments, used-up backpacks and the like, left by NASA astronauts, who landed on the Moon from 1969 to 1972.
